In this talk, we will start by looking at the basic characteristics of serverless and then explore to understand the costing of a solution in a step by step manner. With simple real world scenarios, we will delve into the details of the plain lambda pricing, the effect of API gateway and the imbalance of DynamoDB. With the understanding of the cost, we will touch upon the tools available to help us with the cost estimation before diving into look at few factors to consider while architecting serverless applications.
At the end of this talk, everyone will walk away with the awareness of the cost implications of serverless and the best practices to follow. Remember, pennies do add up!
Ever received an unexpected huge monthly bill for lambda? Well, pennies do add up! Same as we take great care in provisioning lambdas, it is equally essential that we create cost awareness. Using simple scenarios, I will dismantle the myths to leave everyone better equipped to keep their costs down.
This talk is suitable for anyone new to serverless, beginners, engineers, tech leads and managers.
